Excerpt: It is a rare thing for me sit down, start a review and have nothing to say. I am almost always like the Matthew West Song: "Something to Say." Friends, family, and co-workers have known for years that I have something to say. Senators, Congressmen, and even the President know I have something to say. The reason I am working on compiling my thoughts is the creativity, and ingenuity behind The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom.
XBLA Review - 'The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom'
5 June 2010
Summary: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is an innovative game that follows the escapades of a mischievous pie thief, who uses his time-bending abilities to cooperate with, compete against, and disrupt his past, present, and future selves.
Conclusion: The puzzles themselves can be quite challenging but always fill you with a sense of accomplishment when you finally find a solution. Speaking of solutions the same puzzle can be solved many ways. This really becomes apparent in the challenge sections which are not part of the main game, but add a lot extra action. Definitely worth the ten bucks.
Unique time-travel puzzler that is incredibly challenging.

Summary: Parents need to know that The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom offers a unique gaming experience in both visual style and style of play, but that this mind-bending puzzle game is also extremely difficult. Kids who don't have the patience for trial and error, or who can't tolerate a game in which they may need to replay the same level several times before succeeding, are likely to get frustrated.
Summary: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has been anxiously anticipated by many members of the Destructoid staff. I am not one of those people. Despite repeatedly hearing the name followed by words of praise or excitement, I barely gave it a second thought amidst the seemingly unending flood of games which have been releasing as of late. Now I see what all the fuss was about.
Review: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Summary: Building off its stellar presentation, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom offers up a puzzling adventure that is sure to challenge gamers all the while captivating them in the endearing world of Bakersfield. The audio and visuals are superb and are used to maximum effect in producing a unique silent film environment, and the gameplay keeps players performing new tasks while offering tight controls.
Excerpt: Sometimes a game deserves some extra points on its final score simply for style. The Misadventures of P. B. Winterbottom scores its full allotment of style points and then some with its unique look, style, premise, and sense of humor. Puzzle games aren't really known for story or presentation, but don't tell the developers of Winterbottom that because I love the game's whimsical and whacky story and the way in which it is told.
Excerpt: If you do not immediately start tapping your feet to the opening music in The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom , you're off my Christmas card list. It's this great, jaunty barrelhouse piano theme that made me play further into the game just to keep listening to it, and kept me from getting frustrated for as long as it persisted. If nothing else, that's the takeaway point here: this game has great music. P.B. Winterbottom is kind of like playing a Shel Silverstein book.
